HipHopDX Premiere: Ahead of his forthcoming release, 87 EP, Chi City has linked up with 2 Chainz for the new single “Members Only.” Co-produced by Refugee and Chi City, the track revolves around the disingenuous people they come in contact with on a daily basis.
“‘Members Only’ was an idea we was throwing around the studio about how only fake niggas and fake bitches wanna be around us for the fame,” Chi tells HipHopDX. “And being in the industry that we are in, we understood that there is a ‘Members Only’ type code, where it’s invite only when it comes to who you surround yourself with and not everyone is welcome or has earned the right to be welcomed.
“We were sitting around the studio, and 2 Chainz was talking about how he surrounds himself around family and just good people in general,” he adds. “Outta nowhere, he yelled, ‘Surround myself with money,’ and I was like, ‘Whoaa thats it!’ That was the birth of ‘Members Only’ and rest is history.”
The new project drops on August 15. Listen to the track above.
